New Jersey Drops COVID Vaccine Mandate for Health Care Workers, Texas Lags Behind

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy has signed an executive order lifting the COVID-19 vaccination requirements for healthcare workers in the state. The decision to rescind the mandate comes after the federal Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced the withdrawal of its rule requiring vaccination for certified healthcare providers. 

It is not a coincidence that the Governor took action on this as New Jersey is facing a nursing shortage. However, the legislation comes too late. Many nurses, like Melissa Alfieri-Collins, faced termination for refusing to take the shot. Eventually, Melissa was forced to quit.  

This is similar to Jennifer Bridges, a nurse who was fired, along with many of her colleagues, from Houston Methodist Hospital in June of 2021 for refusing to take the vaccine. Now, two years later, Texans are still losing their jobs. 

It’s dismaying that New Jersey is beating Texas when it comes to protecting medical liberty. 

It is time for Governor Abbott to take action and protect the rights of individuals by banning vaccine mandates through a special session. This would ensure that Texans have the freedom to make their own choices regarding COVID-19 vaccinations while upholding the principles of individual liberty and personal autonomy.
